This week on our Weekly Tech Podcast we talk about our review of the Sapphire Tri-X R9 390X graphics card, a few products from Deepcool, Intel Skylake overclocks, upcoming Skylake motherboards, and much more!
We previously tested the DeepCool Captain 240 liquid CPU Cooler and weren’t very impressed with the results. As it turns out neither was DeepCool when they saw our results so they decided to send us a second test unit after all. Fortunately this one arrived from Hong Kong with the thermal paste intact so we got to work immediately retesting.
Deepcool’s original Assassin CPU cooler came out in 2013 and one one of the largest and best performing coolers available. 2014 brought in the Lucifer, which we tested and it proved to be one of the best coolers available at the time. It is now 2015 and Deepcool has released the successor to the original Assassin, the Assassin II. This massive air cooler features a dual tower design, two cooling fans (140mm and 120mm), 8 nickel-plated copper heatpipes and its own 4-port fan hub. Can this cooler reign supreme like Deepcool’s previous two coolers? Read on as we find out…
If there is one thing to be said about Beijing based hardware manufacturer DeepCool, it would be their tenacity for pushing the limits of their own design while creating new and inspiring pieces of tech. While company has been around and creating cooling solutions since 1996, it hasn’t been until recently that they have thrust themselves onto the global enthusiast stage. Since we have been reviewing their products we have moved from simple air coolers to the very steampunk inspired AiO that we are taking a look at today. The Captain 240 is the middle of their Captain line of AiO coolers and really sets itself apart with it’s aesthetics. Read on as we find out if the design is just a veneer or if this cooler really has what it takes to be one of the best.
DeepCool has added another model to its TriStellar line, the TriStellar SW. The TriStellar is the case that launched with the CyberPower Trinity and was the talk of CES. The new TriStellar SW features tempered glass panels on its top compartment. This will allow you to show off your hard drives and graphics card.
DeepCool was showing a few new cases at Computex, one of the more interesting ones was the GamerStorm Nephrite. This slim console-type case has a top compartment for your graphics card that is transparent so you can really show off your graphics card!
DeepCool has just announced two new coolers in its Maelstrom all-in-one liquid CPU cooler line. These new coolers are the Maelstrom 120T and the Maelstrom 240T. As you can guess by their names the 120T has a 120 x 120mm radiator and the 240T has a 120 x 240mm radiator.
Last week CyberPowerPC announced their Trinity Gaming Desktop that made use of this very unique case and now DeepCool has launched the case so you can build you very own system using it. The GamerStorm TriStellar ITX Chassis is one of the more unique PC cases that we have seen in a very long time.
DeepCool has rolled out its second generation GamerStorm Assassin CPU Cooler, the Assassin II. This type-D twin-stack cooler is just HUGE, measuring 143 mm x 158 mm x 167 mm (WxDxH) and weighing in at 1.48 kg (including fans). The cooler features a large nickel-plated copper base, eight nickel-plated copper heatpipes, two aluminum fin stacks and two cooling fans.
CyberPowerPC was showing off one of the coolest systems we have seen in a very long time at CES 2015 this week. They are calling it their Fang Trinity and as you can see from the photos and video below it has quite a radical design, something that we have not seen before!
